The consequences of global warming are hitting Central and East African countries particularly hard and are aggravating an already difficult economic situation. In order to tackle the emergency, it is essential to secure and upgrade irrigation systems, focusing on technologies adapted to local realities
Agia/Cia presented in Bologna a training course to transfer good irrigation practices to farmers. The issue of wastewater use
The reduction in rainfall caused by climate change has significantly reduced water availability in many areas. Irrigation systems play a key role in making the best use of water resource
EIMA Idrotech is the exhibition specialising in technologies for water management in agriculture located within the great exhibition of agricultural mechanics, and already with 210 exhibiting industries, the show offers answers to the water emergency that is now affecting all Italian regions. In the first four months of this year - according to CNR data - the amount of rain has halved compared to the average of the last thirty years
About 250 exhibiting industries have
confirmed their presence at the Idrotech
Show, one of the specialised areas of EIMA
International (Bologna 19-23 October). The
most advanced technologies for the use of
water in agriculture will be on display at the
exhibition. Conferences and seminars on
water emergencies also in relation to climate
change are also scheduled
The increase in global average temperatures has been ongoing since 1976, with increasing anomalies.The trend also affects Italy, which is located in a particularly fragile region, the Mediterranean, from a climatic point of view. In the Peninsula, the increase in temperatures is accompanied by a rainfall deficit
The extensive use of the most advanced electronic and information technologies enables optimized irrigation operations to be carried out, both based on the actual needs of the crop and to achieve rational exploitation of water, a resource that is more and more valuable. Today the market offers a wide choice of reel machines for irrigation, whose features are tailored to the needs of different companies. The sprinkler’s flow rate is an essential variable as the more extensive the covered area, the more significant the overall saving of the operation

Saving water and optimizing the management of plant and manpower are the factors behind the evolution of irrigation technologies. Improving the quality and precision of irrigation machines, sprinklers, solenoid valves and other components, along with the automation of systems, acquiring and elaborating data on water, meteorological and physiological governing irrigation are the strong points of the systems built by the manufacturers in the sector.
Water is not an unlimited resource so its use must be rationalized even in settings in which its availability has never been a problem. Daily consumption, measured with a "water footprint" method, can be reduced by using increasingly more sophisticated and specific systems for various types of crops
